Google makes it easier to ditch Lotus Notes

If your company uses Lotus Notes, and has been considering switching to Google Apps, you're in luck. Google has just launched an easy migration tool that allows you to bring all of your Notes data over to the equivalent Google Apps. In a blog post, Google explains that the migration tool is simple and complete enough for enterprise use, and that a 30,000-person company has already used it to...

Gmail (et al) finally exits beta! Well, at some point today...

In perhaps the most shocking news to ever rock the Internet, Google has announced this morning that the beta tag is finally off Gmail (!!!) along with Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Talk. The change applies to both consumer and enterprise versions. As the Orly owl rightly noticed in my inbox, the tag hasn't disappeared quite yet. The change will likely occur as it has with many other...

Google Apps now syncs with Microsoft Outlook

If you're running Google Apps (Premier or Education editions), but you still use Outlook for email, you're in luck. Google Apps now syncs with Microsoft Outlook, so you can keep right on using it, and get your gmail messages, too. It's not just email that syncs: calendars and contacts do, too. As you'd expect, syncing works both ways: you can bring your Google Apps data into Outlook, and send your...

GBridge gets better with Google Apps support in v2.0

If you haven't heard of GBridge before, here's what it does in a nutshell. Like Hamachi, it creates a zero-config virtual private network between computers. GBridge, as you might guess from the name, uses your Google credentials rather than requiring a separate login. It's an excellent way to back up, sync, communicate with, and remote control machines you administer regardless of where they're...

Gmail themes finally come to Google Apps

When Google introduced themes for Gmail, users who run Google Apps on their own domains figured it would just be a matter of time before they got themes too. After a few months of anticipation -- and frequent postings on message boards, Google Groups, and even Yahoo! Answers -- their wish is finally granted. Themes for Google Apps have now started rolling out. Not all users have themes yet -- my...

OpenItOnline for Firefox opens Office, image files with web apps

By now, many of you are probably using web-based office suites like Zoho, Google Docs, or Thinkfree as your primary office applications. If you do and you're a Firefox user as well, you'll probably love the OpenIT Online addon. I mentioned it previously in my list of 14 extremely useful addons, but it's been updated quite a bit since then. When you install the plugin, the configuration wizard...

FoxGLove is Firefox for Google addicts

You would think that Google Chrome would be the perfect web browser for people who spend most of their day using Google applications like Gmail, Google Calendar, and GTalk. But Chrome lacks some of the features that draw many people to browsers like Firefox. So one Firefox user who uses a ton of Google services decided to mash the two together and create an alternate browser he calls FoxGLove,...

GMDesk: Desktop client for Gmail, Google Docs, Google Reader, etc

Some of the applications I use most often aren't desktop apps, they're web apps that I access through a web browser. Gmail, Google Reader, and Google Docs, for example. GMDesk is an Adobe AIR-based client for these and other Google-based services. It's based on the idea that you shouldn't have to fire up a web browser just to check your email. The concept is sound, but the execution leaves a bit...

How to get "new" Gmail in your Google Apps account

While many people using Google Apps are already happy users of the "new" version of Gmail (apparently Google doesn't want to call it Gmail 2.0), there are still many users of Google Apps that are stuck on the older version. If you're frustrated at seeing the cool new things you can do in the new Gmail and you're still stuck on the old version, there may be something that you can do. If you are...

Google Apps Team Edition makes collaboration easier

While Google's online office suite might not have all the features of Microsoft Office, one area where Google's word processor, spreadsheet, calendar, and IM client excel is in letting you easily collaborate with other users. Want to share a Word document or spreadsheet with other users, just click the share button. But that only works if the people you want to share with have already registered...

iGoogleBar Firefox add-on supercharges Google apps bar

When you're using a Google service like Gmail or Google Docs & Spreadsheets, you'll notice a little menu bar at the top of your screen with links to other Google services. This is kind of handy if you can't remember the URLs for each service, but otherwise it's not particularly useful. iGoogleBar is a Firefox add-on that adds a little oomph to that menu bar by showing previews for each...

Google has big plans for JotSpot in 2008

It's been about a year since Google acquired Wiki/page creation/collaboration/calendar/etc site JotSpot. And for most of that year, there's been a message at JotSpot.com saying that you can't sign up for a new account because Google is still integrating the service. Blogger Andrew Miller reports that Google may be preparing to launch some new JotSpot-based services starting next year. Miller...
